Selfhelp Queens North Friendly Visiting is a program that matches homebound seniors with volunteers in their community who make weekly in-person, phone, and/or video visits. Friendly visiting is an enriching opportunity for the volunteer to develop a meaningful friendship. Together, the older adult and volunteer can discuss shared interests, learn/teach new skills, read books, learn technology, and celebrate special holidays. Your time and companionship as a friendly visitor is invaluable!
